About this property

The Montana Cow Company was homesteaded just outside of Bozeman, MT back in 1860. Five generations later, my dad and I are operating the family business, which has primarily been used for cattle over the years. The ranch sits along the Bridger Mountain Range and consists of a lower and upper field.

The lower field comprises 120 acres, primarily used for fishing, although elk and whitetail do make their way down from the mountains in the late season. Bridger Creek runs right through the lower field and is fed by two smaller creeks. With thick cottonwood trees surrounding the water, this canyon provides exceptional habitat for wildlife. Meanwhile, Bridger Creek is an excellent trout fishing stream.

Archery is allowed on the lower field, however, we recommend sportsmen looking for big game to direct themselves to the upper field. If I’m around, I am happy to answer questions and point sportsmen in the right direction based on what I’ve recently seen around the ranch.

Sportsmen are welcome to camp in the field, although we are only about a 10-minute drive from Bozeman. Due to extreme fire safety hazards, we do not allow campfires anywhere on the premise of the ranch. However, a jet boil or propane grill is allowed.

We are looking forward to hosting you on your next hunt or fishing trip!

Property Visited

Muleys typically move down onto the property at last light and are headed back into the hills at first light, so it is crucial to be in position well before then. There are lots of nooks and crannies with the brush and timber along the creek, with some good corridors for whitetail.

    I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical about this property from looking at the map. It is actually a very nice creek with a lot of fish, all be they pretty small. I started at the southern end of the property, which is quite wooded and brushy with some nice pools and runs. Very tight casting. The middle part above and below the creek crossing is straight and shallow best avoided. The upper part is a bit more open with nice pools. You can continue north above the property line by staying in the creek. I caught around 10 fish include a couple of respectable 10-11" ones. I was there for 5 hours including a lunch break. I plan on going back. JD was nice and took me to a place to park near the stream.

    JD was a great host, very responsive and helpful! The property is gorgeous, we went to check out the property for later in the season. Beautiful place with plenty of habitat for whitetail and some sheltered pastures for elk when they're passing through. Plus, it's so close to town you could sneak a hunt in before or after work!
